What's this /run directory doing on my system and where does it come from?

Well, the technical change is actually minimal, and this is mostly a
contract between dracut, systemd, udev, and very few other low-level

The real technical changes will come when we make /var/run a symlink,
since that probably needs some changes with a wider impact on other
packages. That is planned for F16 and we'll require broader
acceptance. For that I will file a feature page.
